Nice post. The only album (cassette) I ever had with him as leader was Liquid Love, and that was when I was a teen and I don’t remember much about it now other than the artwork! But I love his work on Speak No Evil (Shorter), The Blues and the Abstract Truth (Oliver Nelson), Free Jazz (Ornette), and his contributions to albums by Coltrane, Art Blakey and Herbie Hancock, all of which are in my current collection. Although my musical plate is pretty full these days, you have inspired me to add a helping of some more Freddie. And I had no idea about Jerry covering his tunes, so thanks for that too.

Here is a comprehensive listing of his stuff on youtube:;feature=watch_metadata

He was one of the most diverse sidemen ever. Ever hear the album Out To Lunch! by Eric Dolphy?

Seriously, vapors, pick up Red Clay. If you only had Liquid Love, you are missing out - that's a terrible album when put next to his best works.
